    watch out for sodium, too much is bad for health and makes you retain water -- soy sauce, Worcestershire ----The bad news is this: sauerkraut is so high in sodium that it should only be enjoyed in small amounts to avoid consuming an excessive amount of salt.

    Stir fry - I would do it with chicken thighs but that's me. Boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into strips or bite sized pieces (this is easiest done with kitchen shears), vegetables of your choice cut in whatever way makes since for that vegetable (I would use broccoli, carrots, onions, mushrooms, and maybe cabbage), and a few tsps of oil. Add your sauce of choice and serve it with rice.

    Here are some recipes from Serious Eats for ideas - https://www.seriouseats.com/roundups/stir-fry-recipes

    Do you have a specific medical condition which warrants you being conscious of sodium?

    Does the OP?

    I would do tacos! Guerrero small corn tortillas are 110 calories for 3, then your filling can be pan-cooked chicken thighs (marinated in lime juice, olive oil, garlic, and spices like cumin, onion/garlic powder, chili powder, salt, pepper). I always add diced white onion and cilantro on top.

    I would have a No Name petite steak and small baked potato.

    I like to season chicken breast with cajun, smoked paprika, garlic powder and parsley and cook it on the bbq. I also make carrot and potato foil pouches with 0.5 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil and season with seasoning salt. It's pretty high in sodium but low calorie.

    Usually I have some grilled fish, or canned if I don't have time to cook, and a big tomato and cucumbers salad. Sometimes I add several olives. :)
